Biography

Christopher Bunick, MD, PhD, is a dermatologist who enjoys seeing how happy his patients are when their skin conditions improve. “The confidence they gain to go out into the world and not be shy about the appearance of their skin makes me feel like I am making a difference in people's lives,” says Dr. Bunick, who sees patients in Dermatology’s Middlebury location. 

Dr. Bunick treats patients of all ages for all conditions that affect the skin, hair and nails. These run the gamut from pinpointing the cause of a rash to treating eczema, psoriasis, skin lupus, pigment disorders and skin infections. He regularly performs dermatologic surgery for skin cancers and other benign lesions as well.

Having an open and truthful relationship with his patients is both important and deeply rewarding to Dr. Bunick. “First and foremost, I am always honest with my patients, whether the news I am giving them is positive or not. I always reassure them that I will work very hard to help them, even if it takes time to figure out the problem,” he says. “Patients are always welcome to call if they have any questions or concerns.”  

When he’s not caring for his patients, Dr. Bunick, who is an assistant professor of dermatology for Yale School of Medicine, conducts research on the three-dimensional protein structures that form the skin’s barrier. “My hope is to better understand the molecular mechanisms of the skin barrier, and translate that into better topical therapies for skin issues my patients face,” Dr. Bunick says.
